And one of the best things about this time of the year is that the Liverpool Acoustic team get to take a well-earned break.
There will be no Liverpool Acoustic Open Mic at Sound Food and Drink on Monday 29th. It will be back the week after with the first one of the year on Monday 5th January 2015.
If you’re itching for your regular fix of music between now and 5th January then there are some acoustic and non-acoustic events we can highly recommend.

Don’t forget, you’re heading out of the door to any of the events in the Liverpool Acoustic diary then please check beforehand to see if they’re still taking place. If you turn up for an event that’s also taking a Christmas break then you might end up looking like a prize turkey.
The website will spring back to life with January’s newsletter on Thursday 1st January 2015, so until then we’d like to wish all the Liverpool Acoustic readers a very happy Christmas and a peaceful and prosperous New Year.
Happy Christmas from Graham and Stuart, and the rest of the Liverpool Acoustic team.
